Title Lead Organisation Summary Start Date Closing Date
Council Tax Charge on Empty Dwellings Tameside Council New legislation in the Local Government Finance Act 1998 gives local authorities discretion to increase the council tax charge on empty properties. The Council is therefore considering increasing the charges where the property has been empty for a long period of time in line with new legislation. Although the change only affects owners of empty properties, we are seeking views and comments from the public on the proposals. 10/12/18 18/01/19
Housing Assistance Policy Consultation Tameside Council The Regulatory Reform (Housing Assistance)(England and Wales) Order 2002 (known as the RRO Policy) gives local authorities a general power to introduce policies for Private Sector Housing to provide assistance to individuals with renewals, repairs and adaptations. The current policy was created in 2003 and has remained generally unchanged, but some of the policy schemes are no longer appropriate due to changes in the way local government is funded. In order to continue providing help and assistance to residents and in order to take advantage of the changes made by government we need to change our policy. We want to give the residents of Tameside the opportunity to have their say. 05/12/18 25/01/19

Regional Consultations

Police Funding 2019/20 GMCA Funding for the police comes both directly from central government and also a proportion of your council tax. About 80% of the funding for the police comes in a grant from the government, and the Mayor is responsible for setting the amount of council tax that local households pay for the police.
However since 2010 the amount of money from government has reduced and the Mayor is responsible for setting the Council Tax amount that goes to police funding. The Mayor and Deputy Mayor for Crime and Policing shortly have to decide the amount of council tax that local households will pay for the police over the course of 2019/20, and we would like to know how you feel about the proposals.
